How do I cancel HBO Max?

Things to know
  • Your HBO Max subscription automatically renews until you cancel it.
  • Deleting the HBO Max app does not cancel your subscription.
  • Cancel your subscription before your next billing date to avoid further charges.

HBO Max subscriptions are available through many providers. The cancellation steps vary depending on who bills you. If you know who bills you, skip to Step 2.

To find out how to cancel your Sports Add-on, go to Manage the Sports Add-on.

Step 1: Find who bills you

Here's how to find who bills you for HBO Max:

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Web: Go to HBO.Max.com/subscription and sign in (if needed). Can't sign in?
    • Phone, tablet, or computer: In HBO Max, choose your profile and then Subscription.
    • TV device: In HBO Max, choose the Settings icon cog, (lower left) and then Subscription.
  2. Here you'll find who your base subscription is billed through (top of screen) and who your Sports Add-on is billed through (if applicable). Your base plan and Sports Add-on can be billed by different parties.

You can also check your bank statements or ask your internet, mobile, or TV provider if they bill you for HBO Max.

Step 2: Cancel your subscription

If you're billed through us, here's how to cancel your base subscription:

  1. Go to HBO.Max.com/subscription and sign in (if needed). Can't sign in?
  2. Choose Cancel Your Subscription.
    No cancel option? Take note of who your base subscription is billed through (top of screen) and find them in the Third-party billing section below.
  3. Confirm your cancellation and take note of your expiration date.

You can stream until your subscription expires at the end of your billing period. If you have the Sports Add-on, the add-on will be cancelled when your base subscription expires and you’ll get a refund for the remaining days on your add-on.
